Tara Reid has played in over 41 different films since she started her career as a child actress, playing roles such as Sandy on Saved by the Bell: The New Class and Ashley on Days of our Lives. Her most recent role was playing character April in the new Syfy horror release, “Sharknado”. Reid plays her role alongside “Beverly Hills 90210” star Ian Ziering. The plot, which many have described as “cheesy”, involves vicious sharks being thrown onto land by tornadoes. Reid and Ziering play ex-spouses who team up to investigate why these sharks are suddenly being hurled around in the air by tornadoes instead of swimming around in sea.
This movie was so ridiculous, you know? Like it’s almost so bad that it’s good.
“Sharknado” was released on July 11, 2013, and it was one of the most popular subjects popping up on social media sites, with over 387,000 mentions. However, the movie didn’t receive such good rating and only drew in approximately 1.4 million viewers. This may sound like a lot, but compared to Syfy’s release in 2011, “Swamp Shark” that brought in 2.2 million viewers, it is definitely below average. “I had no idea,” Reid told TMZ Live on Friday. “I just thought sharks flying in he sky is just the funniest movie ever. Because “Sharknado” made such a huge impact in the social media world, Syfy has planned to air the movie again on Thursday July 18th at 7pm EDT.
You can bet I'll be heading to the basement the next time the sharknado sirens sound around here.

When asked if she would be willing to film a sequel to “Sharknado”, Reid said “Why not?” She has made it clear that she is definitely up for doing “Sharknado” round two.
